THE BIRTH OF A LEGEND

Vespa is more than a humble scooter.

Piaggio was founded in Genoa in 1884 by twenty-year-old Rinaldo Piaggio.

It took shape thanks to the successful co-operation of the aeronautical engineer and inventor Corradino D’Ascanio (1891-1981).

The Vespa (wasp in Italian) was the result of Enrico Piaggio’s determination to create a low cost product so anyone could afford one.

FIRST VESPA PATENT—On April 23, 1946
